BREMERTON – Police took 49-year-old Brandie E. Williams into custody Tuesday on suspicion of murder.
Bremerton police arrested Williams sixteen days after 59-year-old David Krazel was found dead at the Stagecoach trailer park in Bremerton, in the middle of a record snow storm, police said.
Coroner Jeff Wallis said an autopsy revealed Krazel suffered injuries including lacerations, though a full investigative report was pending. Bremerton police said Krazel died from multiple stab wounds.
Williams had been living with Krazel for about 10 years at the mobile home and RV park, BPD lead detective Matt Thuring said. Police called her his “long-time live in girlfriend.”
Williams faces a charge of second-degree murder, though formal charges had not been brought. Detective Thuring said police received the blessing of the county prosecutor’s office to make the arrest based on probable cause, and that charges would be filed soon.
Williams was booked at 10:49 a.m., according to the jail roster, and was being held on $1,000,000 bail, police said.
